From The Yigael Yadin Excavations 1963–1965, Final Reports

A lady’s hair net is among the 2,000 textiles found at Masada. Preserved by the dry Judean Desert climate, most of the fragments date from about the time of the First Jewish Revolt (66–70 C.E.) and likely belonged to the Jewish defenders of the site. The Masada fragments represent the earliest Roman-period textiles ever discovered. Only about one-fifth of them have been cleaned and restored: The rest remain as originally excavated in the storerooms of Hebrew University.
